Nintendo of America has an office in its headquarters that remains, to this day, shrouded in mystery. It’s called the Treehouse, and it handles everything from localization to the murky product development tasks. It is an unknown quantity.
That curtain will be pulled back in short order.
Nintendo’s Treehouse has started a new blog called, of course, The Treehouse Log. There are only two posts now, though both are exceptional. Nintendo’s Bill Trinen offers this in the first that captures the spirit of what’s to come.
I realize that we can’t yet really say with certainty what exactly the Nintendo Treehouse Log will become. What I can say is that it will be a place where we’ll post content periodically, rather than on a set schedule. The content will offer insight into games and franchises you love, presented from a unique Treehouse perspective. We may not cover every game or every IP, and we won’t pull the curtain all the way back, but our hope is that the Nintendo Treehouse Log will evolve into something fans will enjoy—a place where you can get details on games you’re looking forward to from a variety of different people who are excited to talk about them. Here’s hoping you’ll be looking forward to our posts, and coming back for more.
Nintendo fans are always hungry for more
If any company needed a blog like this, it’s Nintendo. Xbox does it with Wire, and the PlayStation Blog is stellar for this sort of thing. Hopefully, the Treehouse Log gets personal.
